Recently, Facebook-owned WhatsApp announced that they will be making some changes to its privacy policy in which they will begin sharing data with Facebook. The company had previously introduced these changes, but gave users an option to opt-out (if they were aware of it).

These new changes basically states that there is no more option to opt-out and that if you want to keep using WhatsApp, you’ll have no choice but to agree with these changes. If that makes you feel a bit uncomfortable, then here are some of the best alternatives to WhatsApp that we’ve found.

Telegram has typically been viewed as a competitor to WhatsApp for those who want a bit more privacy. It helps that the app is also open-source which means that it is more or less transparent in what it does, so you can rest assured that if they tried anything funny, people would know. It features self-destructing messages, encryption, group chats with up to 100,000 users, public channels, and more.
